Tried Pressing the F11 Key Yet?
Occasionally, the screen will go to "Full Screen" and the standard toolbar at the top of the window will disappear.. Pressing the F11 key should allow you to toggle your browser from "full" to "normal".
Hope this helps.

How to get back File, Edit, View, etc on toolbar?
In my case, clicking the toolbar is impossible. There is no tool bar to be clicked in the first place. Any better answer, please?
Across apps, I find Alt+F to show this.
But as no one is revealing which app, I doubt there's a better answer.
file, view, edit, help
ALT +F works to bring that menu up, but only for the moment. How can I KEEP it there, always and forever? By the way, Microsoft sucks. So does Windows 10.
Since folk are not sharing which app.
I can't go find out how. Pity.
And Pressing the F11 Key Doesn't Get A Toolbar?
Works on Windows 7
Here's how to get that menu (which displays File, Edit, View, Tools and Help).
1. Click (and release) the "Alt" key. This should make this menu temporarily visible.
2. Under "Tools", select "Folder options...".
3. Go to the "View" tab. (It should be the second of three tabs.)
4. In the "Advanced settings" section, under "Files and Folders", make sure that the "Always show menus" option is checked or ticked.
5. Click "OK". That should do it.

And while your comment is good reading,
I think you should start a new discussion
I think this thread should be closed .
Just an opinion..
try F11 to switch from full screen mode to normal mode and back again. In full screen mode there's a very small toolbar on top, with only buttons, and without the normal menu bar (File, Edit, View). But even in full screen mode you can get that back (also somewhat out of its normal place) by a right click and check "Menu Bar".
Hope this helps.

kindnessisme7, Need more info. Which version of Internet Explorer are you using? Right click whichever bar(s) you have on top and checkmark "Menu Bar".

file/edit/view toolbar is missing
I would like to find out how to restore the file/edit/view/etc./ toolbar.
Restoring the file/edit/view toolbar (menubar) in what version of what program?
And "restoring" seems to imply it was there, but disappeared. Do you know when and why?
It it's internet explorer you're referring to, RIGHT click on a blank area in the toolbar at the top of the window, choose "Menu Bar".
Hope this helps.

Re: Need to get back File, Edit, etc. on toolbar
This is easy
Roll your mouse over the top of the address bar. When your pointer turned into a horizontal double arrow just like this <->, right click your mouse.
An option will come out and you will see that Menu Bar is unchecked. Check it and the File, Edit, etc.. will reappear.

1. I don't think Microsoft ships IE9 with a google homepage. That must be something that you did yourself or that got transferred from IE8.
2. If you don't know how the IE9-beta works, either try to find out (via google maybe) or don't use it and go back to IE8. It's only a beta, you know. I googled IE9 MENUBAR for you, and the first hit was
Does that help?
3. How did you turn off the password?
4. What happens if you change it to something and then immediately change it back to nothing?
